• Welcome to PLTW Gateway! 

    I have been teaching since 2003.  I spent my first 2 years at Spearman Elementary and the next 13 years at Gettys Middle School.  Over the years, I have served in a wide variety of roles.

    • teacher for 5th, 7th, and 8th grade science
    • currently teaching engineering and computer science courses
    • student council advisor
    • volleyball, soccer, and basketball coach
    • competitive robotics coach

    I have really enjoyed the opportunities to serve the students and families of Powdersville Middle and can't wait to see the awesome things they accomplish again this year!

    This year, I will be offering competitive robotics experiences for selected 7th and 8th grade students.

    My family and I live in Easley.  We have 3 kids who are also students in Powdersville schools.  When we aren't in the classroom, you can find us at the soccer fields, dance competitions, at 5Point church, or camping.  

    If you have any questions throughout the year or you would like to get involved, feel free to contact me at scrivnerj@apps.anderson1.org.
